The effect of level of feeding on the intake and digestibility of a tropical grass by sheep



The effect of level of feeding on the intake and digestibility of a tropical grass by sheep



J. Austral. Inst. Agric. Sci 34: 167-168



A diet of Urochloa mosambicensis 95 and Stylosanthes humilis 5% was given to 18 merino wethers at 70, 115 or 140% of the amount eaten to appetite. There was a significant linear relation between amount offered and actual intake. Daily intakes were 33.5, 49.4 and 55.05 g dry matter per kg metabolic weight (W0.75).
